Movie Review – House of Salem (2016)

House of Salem, 2016.

Written and Directed by James Crow.

Starring Jessica Arterton, Leslie Mills, Liam Kelly, Jack Brett Anderson, Robert Lowe, Dean Maskell, Andrew Lee Potts, and Anna Nightingale.

Synopsis:

A gang of kidnappers become a young boy’s protectors when they discover they have been duped into taking part in a dark satanic ritual.

Writer/director James Crow (Curse of the Witching Tree) makes stylish use of genre mixing in this feature, with a blend of British crime thriller and supernatural horror keeping suspense up to the max with plenty of surprises in store. Calling to mind the 1970’s psychological thriller output of Hammer Films (films like Demons of the Mind and Fear in the Night (both 1972) or more recent examples of Brit Horror crime thrillers such as Kill List (2011) which meld different genre elements into a horror film, House of Salem delights in never really letting the audience know where its going.
